Welcome to Oakwood 

Here is a place "where loveliness keeps house," 

.... where "true education" means more than the pursual of a 
certain course of study, 

.... where the Oakwood program of Christian education is 
focused both on Christian growth and academic excel- 
lence, 

.... where students from scores of states and foreign lands 
"enter to learn and depart to serve," and 

.... where both teacher and student find a common bond of 
unity as "companions in learning and searching for 
truth." 

Look through these pages and get a view of Oakwood College. 
Behold its emphasis on the spiritual, its viable academic pro- 
gram, its student-centered activities, its beautiful campus, its 
modern physical plant, and all that go together to make Oakwood 
a place "where loveliness keeps house." 

CALVIN B. ROCK, President

INSTITUTIONAL MISSION 

Oakwood College, a four- year undergraduate, church-related, liberal 
arts institution founded in 1896 in the city of Huntsville, Alabama, is 
historically committed to providing a unique and challenging educational 
opportunity for students who exhibit academic potential but whose needs for 
training stem from educational and socio-economic deprivation. The Col- 
lege has historically demonstrated its philosophy that meaningful education 
is more than the pursual of a certain course of study. It, therefore, endeavors 
to foster the holistic view of educating the whole being through the harmoni- 
ous development of the physical, cultural, intellectual, mental, and spiritual 
faculties. 

The mission of the College inheres in the provision of a liberal, yet 
functional curriculum program in arts and sciences, and in professional 
preparation in education and business. Such hberal, professional, and pre- 
professional programs are further complemented by experiential and occu- 
pational learning in selected fields and vocations. 

Finding in the Christian faith the true basis for understanding all human 
experiences, Oakwood accepts the responsibility of achieving in each stu- 
dent academic excellence but acknowledges the further obligation to main- 
tain and exemplify Christian commitment in scholarships and in all institu- 
tional endeavors. Throughout its programs of instruction, research, and 
public service, the College seeks to enlighten the mind, to enhance the 
quality of personahty , to enable each individual, out of Christian love and 
concern, to serve mankind creatively, responsibly, and humanely, and to 
enkindle a never-ending search for knowledge and truth. 

Because of its historic commitment to serve those who exhibit high 
academic potential but are deprived of educational enrichment, the College 
provides a strong basic educational and support program through academic 
advising and counseUng. To meet the needs of its gifted and average 
students, Oakwood College further shares with other institutions the univer- 
sal concerns of higher education: a teaching function designed to develop 
highly skilled individuals dedicated to the improvement of life in American 
society through service to the community. Toward this end, the College 
seeks to attract qualified and dedicated faculty and encourages through them 
experimentation with traditional and nontraditional educational methods and 
instructional strategies to increase the quality and productivity of its educa- 
tional services. 

Oakwood College is also committed to serving the needs of the under- 
prepared student by ( 1) providing a program for the elimination of deficits in 
basic skills essential for a college education, (2) providing guidance and 
counseling for that group of students which focus upon those dimensions 
which might be and often are inhibitive of success; and (3) using varied 
instructional approaches. It is the Institution's design that through these 
techniques the underprepared student will acquire the necessary self- 
confidence and tools to successfully complete programs focused on tradi- 



General Information 31 

tional as well as nontraditional career pursuits or programs leading to 
graduate or professional education. 

Recognizing the influence of a suitable environment upon learning and 
the assurance of achieving the mission described above, the College seeks to 
provide a physical environment and appropriate academic and student sup- 
port systems to facilitate the variety of human interaction and relationships 
essential for learning, and to provide programs and facilities which allow for 
continuous evaluation, growth, and expansion of the Institution. 

GOALS 

The mission of Oakwood College can be expressed in six general goals: 
spiritual, intellectual, cultural, personal adjustment, vocational, andphysi- 
cal. 

1 . Spiritual: To provide a spiritual environment and religious instruc- 
tion that will enable the student to reflect fully the image of Jesus 
Christ through emphasis on the development of character and talent, 
the nobililty of ambition, the keenness of perception with sound 
judgment, so that the student is prepared to render unselfish service 
to God and man. 

2. Intellectual: To provide academic programs and comprehensive 
curricula made up of a broad range of degree programs which will 
allow each student to acquire knowledge and skills to grow person- 
ally, socially, academically, and professionally, and to meet their 
needs and societal demands. 

3 . Cultural: Enrich the lives of community residents and students by 
serving as a cultural and educational center, offering cultural and 
recreational programs of interest and value. 

4. Personal Adjustment: To provide opportunities which will help 
students identify, clarify, and develop their aesthetic, moral, and 
spiritual values and philosophy, through supportive student services 
programs which facilitate growth and success in the academic, 
social, economic, and spiritual community. 

5. Vocational: To provide for the students courses which will impart 
skills and knowledge in certain vocations best suited to the students' 
interests and aptitudes, while teaching them the dignity of labor 
through provisions of on-campus work opportunities and courses 
which provide field experiences which aid in their choice of a 
vocation. 

6. Physical: To provide a health and physical education program along 
with recreational activities that will give an understanding of and 
encourage proper care of the body. Consistency in the teaching of 
good health habits is carried throughout the College's food and 
recreational program.

Church, the Sabbath School, the A.Y.S. (Adventist Youth) Society, the

Convocations, the Lyceum Course: During the school year distin- 
guished guest speakers address the student body at the chapel hour as well as 
conduct Religious Emphasis weeks. The College Lyceum series bring to the

GOVERNING STANDARDS 
It is the purpose of the College to develop strong men and women with 
high standards of scholarship and the self-discipline necessary for Christian 

leadership. r j j 

The campus government and discipline, therefore, are founded upon 
the principle that character building is the highest object of education and 
that a good name, standing for integrity, honor, and godUness, is the 
objective ahke of the student for himself and of the College for him. 

Oakwood College is a Seventh-day Adventist college established to 
provide a Christian environment in which students may prepare themselves 
for service at home and in other lands. In order to maintain this environment 
certain general rules of conduct apply. 

Student Handbook: In every community there are laws . It is the respon- 
sibility of every student to secure from the Office of Student Services and to 
read the rules and regulations governing student life at Oakwood College, 
preferably before registration. Familiarity with and acceptance of the re- 
quirements set forth in this book will make life at Oakwood College more 
interesting and certainly more enjoyable. 



38 Oakwood College 

A student's standing in a Christian school is based not alone on his 
scholarship attainment but also upon his general conduct and his attitude 
toward the community in which he lives. As a citizen of the college 
community the student must realize that he has been admitted to a privileged 
group and that he has no right to work against that group. Any student who 
violates the rules of the College or whose conduct evidences lack of respect 
for the standards maintained by the College may be asked to withdraw. 

STUDENT CITIZENSHIP 

Each individual coming to Oakwood College for the purpose of enter- 
ing any department of the College is subject to its supervision and jurisdic- 
tion from the time of arrival in Huntsville until his connection is terminated 
by graduation or by any officially approved withdrawal. 

The record of each student is reviewed periodically, and his continua- 
tion in college is based upon his attitudes and general conduct, as well as his 
scholastic attainments. 

Listed among the government policies of the College are infractions 
which are considered suspendable and may be cause for dismissal or serious 
disciplinary action of the first offense. 

Since no student who makes a habit of indulging in any of these 
practices would knowingly be accepted at Oakwood College, the first 
infraction may result in dismissal from school. 

A student whose progress or conduct is unsatisfactory or whose influ- 
ence is detrimental may be asked to withdraw at any time. 

Any student dismissed from school withdraws immediately from the 
campus and may be subjected to charges of trespassing should he return 
without permission from the Administration. 

Leave of Absence: Permission for an ordinary leave of absence from the 
campus may be obtained from the appropriate Residence Dean. Approval 
must also be obtained from the work superintendent. When a leave of 
absence involves absence from a class, permission must be obtained from 
the Dean of the College. When the leave of absence takes a student farther 
than the city of Huntsville, it must be approved by the Office of Student 
Services . Written permission from the parent or guardian for travelling must 
be on file for every student requesting a leave of absence. Exceptions to this 
rule are granted only to students who are both of legal age and self- 
supporting. In every case, working students must secure the approval of their 
work superintendent before presenting their requests to their respective 
deans . 

Attendance at Religious Services: Oakwood College is emphatically a 
Christian college. Attendance at evening worships, chapel, Friday evening 
vespers, Sabbath School, and Sabbath morning church service is a basic 
requirement. 

Use of Vehicles: Since the ownership and the use of an automobile 
frequently militate against success in college, students are not encouraged to 




AT OAKWOOD COLLEGE STUDENT LABOR CARRIES ACADEMIC CREDIT 



40 Oakwood College 

bring automobiles with them to the College unless absolutely necessary. 
Freshmen are not permitted to bring automobiles to the College, or to the 
vicinity, or to operate automobiles owned by other individuals. 

All students, whether living in residence halls or in the community, 
who own or operate any type of motor vehicle (car, motorcycle, scooter, 
etc .) must register it with the Office of Security at the time of registration for 
the fall quarter, or within 24 hours of his arrival should he arrive after 
registration has been concluded or within 24 hours of its procurement within 
any quarter of the school year. Owners must have a valid operator's license 
and must show proof of liability insurance (including medical coverage) at 
the time of registration and whenever requested by traffic enforcement 
personnel. 

RESIDENCE HALLS 

All unmarried students are required to live in one of the College 
residence halls and to board in the College Cafeteria unless they live with 
parents or with other close relatives in the City of Hunts ville. When campus 
housing is overcrowded, students age 23 and over may apply to the Housing 
Committee for permission to hve in the community. Under special cir- 
cumstances, students under age 23 also may apply to the Housing Commit- 
tee for permission to live off-campus in an officially approved home. 

Such applications will be acted on only at the beginning of a quarter. 
Failure to secure official approval to reside in the community or to withdraw 
from a college residence hall when directed to do so will invaUdate the 
registration of a student. Students who have received approval for off 
campus living may be called into the College residence halls at any time the 
administration deems necessary for reasons of discipline or under- utilization 
of available space in the residence halls. 

Residence Supervision: Each residence hall is under the direction of a 
Residence Dean. The Residence Deans have general supervision of the 
well-being of the students under their charge. 

APARTMENTS 

The College owns thirty units of one- and two-bedroom apartments 
which are available for married students. These apartments rent for reasona- 
ble amounts. There are also approved apartments in the community, fur- 
nished and unfurnished, in which married students may live. For informa- 
tion write the Vice-President for Student Services. 

THE COUNSELING CENTER 

A comprehensive program of guidance and counseling services is made 
available to students. 

SERVICES 

Services include TESTING (diagnostic assessment, national placement 
examinations, CLEP), COUNSELING (personal, career, pre-marital, mar- 



Counseling 41 



riage and family), PLACEMENT (post-baccalaureate recruitment for pro- 
spective graduates, full- and part-time jobs within the metropolitan area of 
Huntsville), dind DEVELOPMENTAL GUIDANCE (career development, 
human relations, leadership training, and family life education). 

GOALS AND PHILOSOPHY 

The Center's emphasis is on personal development. Its primary goal is 
to help students become more effective in handling and resolving problem 
situations before they become critical by teaching them what to expect and 
how to behave adaptively under most circumstances. It is a preventive 
philosophy which is believed to be most suitable to the needs, beliefs, and 
practices of Seventh-day Adventists and other fundamentally conservative 
Christians. 

The goal for its consulting activities is to facilitate the continuing 
development and maintenance of an optimal collegiate environment for 
learning and individual growth. 

CONFIDENTIALITY 

Personal information regarding specific individuals is held in strictest 
confidence and may not be released without the written consent of the 
persons involved. 

COST 

Professional services to students are given without charge. There are, 
however, charges associated with the computer scoring and analysis of 
diagnostic tests and the administration of the national placement examina- 
tions and CLEP. 

COOPERATIVE EDUCATION 

The Cooperative Education Program (CEP) combines classroom learn- 
ing with actual work experience in community businesses and corporations. 
This is done on an alternating basis in a work setting that closely relates to a 
student's major field of study and his/her career aspiration. 

Benefits. Academic credits are earned in the classroom and on the job. 
In addition, a number of other student needs are met. They are, 1) money to 
pay educational costs and provide for personal necessities; 2) opportunity to 
test the propriety of educational and career goals; 3) opportunity to enrich the 
learning process by applying theoretical concepts to the practical, concrete 
demands of real work situations and their attendant problems; and 4) upon 
graduation, increased employability because of the distinct advantage of 
having a college degree and bona fide work experience in the career of one's 
choice. 

Eligibility. To qualify for the program, students must have completed 
their freshman year and have and maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 
2.50. Transfer students may apply after completing twelve (12) hours in 
residence at Oakwood College. 



42 Oakwood College 

Rate of Pay. Once hired, students are paid by the employing organiza- 
tions at the standard rate for entry level workers or in accordance with their 
individual experience and skills. Under no circumstances should they earn 
less than minimum wage. 

Academic Credit. Up to twelve (12) hours of academic credit may be 
earned for each quarter that you participate in the program. For written 
details on how to quahfy for these hours, contact the Counseling-Placement 
Office or the Office of Academic Affairs. 

The credits earned through participation in CEP are elective credits and 
may be included in the total required for graduation. However, they will 
NOT be deducted from the minimum hours required for the major and/or 
minor. It must be understood that, in most cases, participation in the 
program will entail more than four years of study to complete the require- 
ments for the baccalaureate degree. 

Cooperative Education courses may be identified by the prefix CE. The 
last digit of the number refers to the work period for that year. For example: 
CE 301 - CE 306: First Work Period through Sixth Work Period. 

Where to Apply. Smdents wishing to apply for CEP should first, 1) 
consult with the Coordinator of Cooperative Education, and 2) submit a 
formal request to the Academic Policies Committee. 

FRESHMAN STUDIES 

The Freshman Studies Program is a composite of diagnostic, instruc- 
tional, and supportive services to first-year students. Its purpose is to 
increase their potential for academic success and personal adjustment to the 
demands of college life. Components of the program include: 
Orientation. 

The week preceding registration for the Fall Quarter of each year is 
known as Freshman Orientation Week. New students admitted to freshman 
status are expected to report as notified and, upon arrival, to participate in 
all of the scheduled activities of the week. These include (a) orientation to the 
academic and residential requirements of the College and the resources that 
are available to assist all students in meeting them successfully; (b) de- 
velopmental guidance and instruction regarding tasks, skills, and attitudes 
that are essential for academic and personal success. 
Diagnostic Assessment. 

During Freshman Orientation Week and at the beginning of every 
quarter thereafter, special tests are administered which are required oi all 
new freshmen. They are the American College Test (ACT), the Stanford 
Diagnostic Reading Test (SDRT), the California Personality Inventory 
(CPI), and the Mooney Problem Checklist (MPQ. 

Results from these tests are used for ( 1) placing students in appropriate 
courses of study; (2) facilitating the development and/or provision of pre- 
scriptive teaching materials and strategies; (3) fulfilling Alabama state 
requirements for entrance into special programs; and (4) assisting advisors 



44 Oakwood College 

and counselors in their work of helping students to plan their academic 
programs, evaluate their academic progress, and set realistic personal and 
career goals. Accumulated data will help the College to determine what 
areas of its programs and services needs strengthening and/or modification 
in order to effectively fulfill its commitment to the success of its students. 
Academic Advisement and Program Planning. 

Although their declared interests in specific disciplines will be ac- 
knowledged, first- year students will be encouraged to concentrate on gen- 
eral education requirements for the purpose of academic exploration and 
continuing self- discovery. Freshman advisors, by means of extended inter- 
views and performance reviews throughout the year, will assist in the 
process of confirming or modifying the personal interests and aspirations of 
each student. 

Special Services. 

Students with special academic and developmental needs will receive 
appropriate assistance from Inner College, the school's learning resource 
center. Assistance will be in the form of individuaUzed course loads, 
specialized instruction, tutoring, and counseling performed by a dedicated 
staff of professional counselors and selected honor students. Referrals for 
more specialized services will be made as warranted. 



COOPERATIVE PROGRAMS 

The following types of coop programs are made available at Oakwood 
College: 1) Visiting Students, 2) Architect, Engineering, and Veterinary 
Medicine (via ACHE consortium of eight predominantly Black colleges in 
Alabama), and 3) Off-campus Employment.

SPECIAL EXAMS 

A student who presents satisfactory evidence of having competency or 
exposure in a certain area covered by a required course may meet an 
academic requirement by passing a waiver examination, an examination for 
credit, or the CLEP examination. Each of these should be equal in scope and 
difficulty to a comprehensive examination in the course. 

Not more than forty-eight (48) hours of the total credit hours required 
for graduation may be earned by the examination for credit and/or the CLEP 
subject examination. Seniors challenging a course by examination must do 
so before April 15. 

The various departments concerned will decide what subjects are open 
for examination for credit. The student must obtain a score on any such 
examination which would equate with a "C" grade in the course in order to 
be eligible for credit or waiver. 

A student may not take a more advanced course in a given area while 
waiting for permission from the Academic Policies Committee to sit for a 
lower level course. No credit will be recorded until the student has earned at 
least twelve (12) hours at Oakwood with a minimum GPA of 2.00. 

Grades below "D" may not be changed by these examinations. A 
student may not take a proficiency examination for credit for the same course 
more than once. 

Examination for Waiver. Students who present satisfactory evidence of 
having competence in an area covered by a required course may apply to the 
Academic Policies Committee to take an examination for waiver. After 
being given approval by the Committee and having paid $25.00 to the 
Accounting Office as an examination fee (nonrefundable) the student will be 
administered the examination. If he earns a satisfactory score on the exami- 
nation, the required course may be waived and he will be allowed to 
substitute some other course in its place. Hour credit toward graduation 
cannot be earned by this examination. 

EXAM FOR CREDIT 

A. Formal Study 

If the student can present satisfactory evidence of a background of 
formal study in any area of the curriculum, he may be permitted by the 



58 Oakwood College 

Academic Policies Committee to sit for a comprehensive examination cover- 
ing the requirements for any such course taught at Oakwood and receive 
credit toward graduation. If such an exam is not available at Oakwood 
through CLEP, then the appropriate department prepares an exam. Upon 
approval of the Committee, the student will pay to the Accounting Office the 
tuition based on $25.00 per hour of credit offered by the course. This fee is 
not refundable. The grade earned on the examination will be recorded. 

B. Life Experience 
Policy Statement 

Life Experience Credit is granted upon the evaluation of accomplish- 
ments and competencies not ordinarily considered part of the traditional 
classroom experience. The program is geared towards the mature adult who 
has had a minimum of ten years' experience in a given area. Credit, 
however, is not applicable towards the first five years, and not until the 
student has completed a minimum of sixteen (16) quarter hours with a 
minimum of 2.0 G. P. A. at Oakwood College. 
Procedures 

1. Describe learning experiences you believe can be translated into 
academic credit. 

2. Review document with your academic advisor. 

3. Suggest what courses in the current catalog your life experience 
learning may equate. 

4. Submit documentary evidence that may be used to verify the experi- 
ences you have identified (this should include testimonials from 
former employers and/or supervisors). 

5. Pass challenge exams in areas for which credit is expected. 
Note: Any credit granted will be for the learning gained, and not just for 

the experience itself. Therefore, it is your responsibility to prove to the 
satisfaction of the Academic Policies Committee that from your experience 
you have developed competencies that are equivalent to classroom learning, 
in order to qualify to sit for challenge exams. 
Evaluation Formula

hours . 

2 . Not more than 25% of the 1 92 hours required for graduation shall be

ENGLISH PROFICIENCY EXAMINATIONS 

Each student is required to take a proficiency test in English during his 
junior year. This test is administered as scheduled in the calendar once 
during the fall and winter quarters. A student is allowed to take the test twice. 
If he fails to pass the test, he is required to enroll in EN 250, a two-hour 
course in English fundamentals , and to pass this course in order to qualify for 
graduation. A fee often dollars ($10.00) is charged for this test.5>' the end of 
the winter quarter of his senior year, a student must have passed the 
proficiency test in English or the course in English fundamentals , both of 
which are not offered during the spring quarter. 

Students who earn a grade of "B" (not B-) or higher in Advanced 
Composition at Oakwood College are exempted from the English Profi- 
ciency Test required of all prospective graduates. (Does not apply if Ad- 
vanced Composition is taken at another institution.) 

GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATION 

All graduating seniors are encouraged to take both the aptitude and 
advanced sections of the Graduate Record Examination, except majors in 
Theology, Secretarial Science, Home Economics, Business Education and 
Business Administration, who will be expected to take the aptitude section. 
The Medical College Admissions Test, the Dental Aptitude Test, the Law 
School Admissions Test, the National Teachers' Examination, and the 
Admission Test for Graduate Study in Business are accepted as substitutes 
for the Graduate Record Examination. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

The college grading system issues the four point scale. The grade point 
values are outlined below as follows: 

Grade Points 
Grade • Per Hour 

A (superior) 4.0 

A- 3.7 



Academic Policies 61 

B+ 3.3 

B (above average) 3.0 

B- 2.7 

C+ 2.3 

C (average) 2.0 

C- 1-7 

D+ 1-3 

D (below average) 10 

D- 0.7 

F (failure) 0.0 

FA (failure due to absences) 0.0 

I (incomplete) 0.0 

W (withdrew) 

WF (withdrew failing) 

WP (withdrew passing) v 

AU (audit) 

NC (non- credit) 

GRADE POINT AVERAGE 
The grade point average (GPA) for the quarter is computed by totaUng 
the grade points earned in all courses attempted and dividing by the total 
hours attempted. Credits for which an F or WF are received are included m 
calculating the grade point average. The symbols WP, AU and NC are 
disregarded in computing the grade point average. Incompletes are mcluded 

in the GPA. 

PASS OR FAIL PROCEDURES 

To qualify for taking courses on a pass-fail basis a student must be a 
sophomore, junior, or senior, and must not be on academic probation. The 
total number of hours that may be taken on this basis is 16. The pass-fail 
system applies to elective courses only. 

Approval for theP-F option should be obtained at the Records Office 
before the close of late registration. Registration changes in the process are 
final as of the last day to drop without academic penalty. 

NOTE: Some graduate and professional schools treat the "P" as a 

"D." 

GRADES AND REPORTS 

Grade reports are issued to the student and to the parents or guardians at 
the end of each quarter provided the student's account is in order. 
ERRORS AND CORRECTIONS 

Upon the receipt of a grade report, the student should carefully check it 
for correctness as to the courses recorded, credits, and grades. Any correc- 
tions needed must be taken care of within one week. No change will be made 
in the permanent record after two weeks from the issue of the grade report.

College conducts an annual Honors Convocation. To be eligible for partici- 
pation the student must have a cumulative grade point average of not less 
than 3.50 for a minimum of 24-32 hours earned at Oakwood College or a

Magna Cum Laude. A student must have a grade point average of 3 . 50 . 

Summa Cum Laude . A student must have a grade point average of 3 . 75 , 
or above. 

INCOMPLETE WORK 

\Mien at the end of a quarter a student is behind in his or her classwork, 
the teacher does not automatically grant a grade of "I" to that student for 
more time to do the requirements. If. however, because of interruptive 
illness or other unavoidable circumstances, a student should desire the 
privilege of receiving a grade of "I" (Incomplete) to allow more time to 
fulfill class requirements, that student may apply by doing all of the follow- 
ing before the end of final exam week: 

1. Obtain and fiU out a "Request and Authorization for INCOM- 
PLETE"* at the Office of Academic .Affairs. 

2. Attach thereto a doctor's statement if the reason is medical. 

3 . Obtain the signatures of the class instructor, the instructor's depart- 
ment head, and the Academic Vice-President. 

4. Remm the form to the Vice-President's Office and receive an 
ansM;er before leaving the campus. 

An 'T" may be changed to a regular grade when the classwork is 
completed within the approved deadhne. Such a deadhne might range 
anywhere from a few days to several weeks but no longer than the sixth week 
of the next quarter even when the student is not registered the next quarter. 
The ' 7' ' automatically converts to an ' T' ' if not removed within the 



Academic Poliqes 63 



prescribed time. Should more time because of further illness or unavoidable 
circumstances be needed to remove the incomplete, the student may, before 
the deadline expires, request in writing an extension of time from the 
Academic Policies Committee. 

PERMANENT "I's" 

If a student fails to settle his/her account within 2 1 days from the time of 
final exams, "permanentl's" will be entered upon his/her permanent record 
in the Registrar's Office, during any quarter. 

ACADEMIC PROBATION 

All students whose cumulative grade point average (GPA) is less than 
2.00 shall be placed on academic probation. Retained at Oakwood College 
under restricted privileges, smdents whose grade point average is less than 
2.00 must take part in the Special Instruction Program (SIP) conducted by 
the Developmental Learning Resource Center. Failure of such students to 
take part in the program may result in dismissal from the College. Students 
below 2.00 who fail to make acceptable progress in the estimation of the 
institution will be dropped. 

When a student is dropped for thQ first time because of poor scholar- 
ship, he or she is not eligible to be considered for readmission or reaccep- 
tance until after the end of two (2) quarters from the date of dismissal. When 
dropped the second time, the student becomes eligible for readmission or 
reacceptance after one (1) calendar year from the date of dismissal during 
which time the student must have attended another accredited college for at 
least one quarter, carrying a minimum of 12 quarter hours with no grade 
lower than "C." In both cases, to be so considered, the student must present 
a request to the Admissions Office. 

A student whose cumulative GPA is below 2.0 is denied permission to 
represent the College in any official capacity or hold office in any student 
organization. 

The following is a summary list of requirements for a smdent on 
academic probation (GPA below 2.0): 

1. Limit registration to class load of 14 or less hours per quarter. 

2. Include in class load at least one course in which he or she has 
received a "D" or "F" and/or enroll in a remedial course as 
counseled by the academic advisor, and 

3 . Go to the Developmental Learning Resource Center for assistance. 

DEVELOPMENTAL LEARNING RESOURCE CENTER 
The Developmental Resource Learning Center is an academic support 
service which exists for the purpose of helping students who need assistance 
in any academic endeavor. This is accomplished by peer-mtonng and 
academic advisement under the supervision of a full-time coordinator. The 
center also maintains a wide variety of media materials and individualized 
study guides. The student (peer) tutors are generally upperclassmen recom- 
mended by the various departments. 



^ Oakwood College 

The Center is located on the ground floor of Cunningham Hall and is 
open during the day and evening hours in order to accommodate all students 
desinng such assistance. 

REPEATED COURSES 

Occasionally students express an interest in repeating a course if the 
earned grade cannot apply toward graduation or for other reasons. 

A student may repeat a course in which he has a grade of "C" only by 
permission of the Academic Policies Committee. 

A student who has earned a grade of "D" in a major, minor, cognate 
or in other required courses may, on the advice of his major professor repeat 
the course or take another course in the same area, if it is recommended In 
either case, the professor expresses his desire in writing. 

The student who repeats a course is required to register in the regular 
way, repeat all the work of the course, including laboratory requirements 
and other required activities. 

If a student repeats a course, he may receive whatever grade he earns 
but he may not repeat the course for credit more than once, unless the most 
recent final grade is "F." 

Each time a course is taken the student' s record will show the hours for 
which he registered and the grade points earned. 

When a student is granted permission to repeat a course in which a 
failmg grade has previously been recorded, his GPA will be computed on the 
basis of the final grade earned. However, both grades will appear on his 

transcript. 

^ REMEDIAL CLASSES 

Credit hours for remedial work are not applied toward graduation. 
AUDITING COURSES 

Students may audit courses only by permission of the Vice-President 
for Instruction and the instructor concerned. 

Those who are interested in such courses should register at the time of 
the regular registration. 

No credit is given for a course audited. 

The tuition charged is one-half the regular charge for credit. 

Laboratory courses may not be audited. 

A course started on the auditing basis cannot be changed to a credit 
basis after the first week of the course. 

CORRESPONDENCE 

No student shall take work by correspondence or enroll in another 
institution of higher learning while registered at Oakwood College without 
permission from the Academic Policies Committee. 

CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTENSION WORK 

Oakwood College recognizes and accepts credit for courses taken with 
the Home Suidy International, which is the Extension Division of the 
Associated Colleges of Seventh-day Adventists. 

A maximum of 1 8 quarter hours ( 1 2 semester hours) of correspondence 



Academic Poliqes 65 



work or extension work credit may apply toward a baccalaureate degree 
program and twelve hours toward a two-year terminal program. 

Ordinarily a student will be permitted to carry correspondence or 
extension work while in residence only if the required course is not obtaina- 
ble at the college. 

It is not recommended that seniors do any correspondence or extension 
work. In cases where this is an absolute necessity, the official transcript for 
the work completed must be in the Registrar's Office before April 15 of the 
quarter in which graduation is expected. 

All correspondence or extension work, whether taken while in resi- 
dence or during the summer, MUST BE APPROVED IN advance by the 
Academic Policies Committee and Registrar respectively. Appropriate 
forms may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. 

Correspondence and extension credit with a "D" grade is unaccepta- 
ble. No correspondence credit will be entered upon the student's record until 
he has earned a minimum of 16 hours in residence with an average of at least 
"C." (See Study Load). 

SEMINAR COURSES 

The only seminar courses offered are those already so labeled under 
departmental sections of the O. C. Bulletin. These require regular class 
attendance as based on the credit hour of the course. 

RESEARCH AND INDEPENDENT STUDY 

Certain departments offer a course entitled "Research and Independent 
Study" for 1 to 4 hours credit to provide qualified students an opportunity to 
work on problems or topics of special interest, to engage in research 
projects, and to do scholarly study as advanced work. Following are funda- 
mental requirements for enrolling in such a course: The student will ( 1) be a 
junior or senior in residence with at least a B average (3 .00) , (2) make formal 
application at the time of regular registration by conferring with the head of 
his or her major department, (3) be a major in the department in which he or 
she desires the course "Research and Independent Study," (4) receive in 
writing from the Academic Vice-President final approval to register for the 
course, (5) receive in writing the specific requirements and expectations of 
the course from the department head. 

SUMMER SCHOOL 

Under the umbrella of the Graduate Extension Program with Andrews 
University, the College offers brief intensive courses and workshops during 
the summer at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. 

TRANSIENT LETTERS 

When an Oakwood student of regular standing finds it necessary to drop 
out of attendance for one quarter but desires to register at another college or 
university, he or she may request a "transient letter" from the Academic 
PoUcies Committee which recommends the student for temporary admission 



^ Oakwood College 

to that other school without the student's having to go through normal 
admission requirements. Transient letters, however, are not granted for 
attendance at colleges or universities within a fifty-mile radius of Huntsville 
during the academic year. 

Transient credit with grades below "C" is unacceptable. Students from 
other schools desiring transient admission to Oakwood must provide official 
support from the home institution. 

TRANSCRIPTS 

The Records Office releases transcripts of a student's work at the 
college only upon the student's written request. Telephone requests cannot 
be honored. 

A student may secure an unofficial transcript for his use, but official 
transcripts must be sent directly to other colleges, organizations, and other 
approved sources. Official transcripts normally cannot be handcarried with- 
out prior permission of the receiving institution; however, if permission is 
granted, the transcript will be delivered in a sealed envelope. 

The college reserves the right to withhold all information concerning 
the record of any student who has unpaid accounts or other charges or who is 
delinquent in payment of student loans. No exceptions will be made. 

Two weeks from the time we receive your request should be allowed for 
the processing and mailing of the transcript. Official transcripts from other 
institutions which have been presented to Oakwood for admission and 
evaluation of credit become the property of Oakwood and are not reissued or 
copied for release. Each student is entitled to one (1) official transcript 
without charge. A Tee of $2.00 is charged for each additional transcript. 

ATTENDANCE REGULATIONS 

Regular and prompt attendance at all classes, chapel exercises, wor- 
ships, and work assignments is expected of all students. Lack of attendance, 
therefore, implies lack of cooperation with the requirements of the College. 

CLASS ABSENCES 

Oakwood College operates under the following principles: 

It is the responsibility of each instructor to interpret the College policies 
concerning attendance and to make his interpretations known to his students 
at the beginning of each course. Every instructor has the right to count class 
participation including attendance in calculating the term grade. It is the 
responsibihty of the student to keep a record of his absences, to keep himself 
informed of the requirements of the instructor, to take all examinations at the 
time prescribed by the instructor, and to turn in all assignments when they 
are due. 

Other than the above, the following regulations are in effect: 

Attendance with punctuality is required at all classes and laboratory 
appointments. No class skips are allowed. If for any reason the total number 
of absences is double the number of credit hours of the course per quarter, 



Academic Policies 67 



credit may, at the discretion of the instructor, be forfeited and a grade of 
"FA" be recorded. Absences are counted from the first official day of 
classes. Three tardinesses are equivalent to one absence. A tardiness of more 
than ten (10) minutes is considered an absence. 

Authorized leaves of absence from campus do not excuse the student 
from classes or relieve the student of required class work. The student, 
however, must make arrangements with the teacher for every anticipated 
school trip and other authorized leaves at least 48 hours before the beginning 
of such anticipated schedules. All make-up work, involving examinations 
and other class requirements, must be made up within seven (7) days after 
the absence is incurred. 

ASSEMBLY ABSENCES 

All registered students (on and off campus) are required to attend 
chapel. A student is allowed two unexcused absences from Assembly 
without penalty each quarter. A $5.00 charge will be made for each unex- 
cused absence in excess of two. 

Excuses for absences from Assembly must be submitted in writing to 
the Director of Student Services before the very next Assembly . Failure to do 
this will automatically result in an unexcused absence. 

Permanent excuses from Assembly may be granted in the case of 
unavoidable work responsibilities. In order to be eligible for a permanent 
excuse for a quarter, a written request, signed by the work supervisor, must 
be submitted to the Office of Student Services within 21 days of each 
quarter. 

STUDENT MISSIONARY PROGRAM 

Each year, several Oakwood students go to foreign lands and serve as 
missionaries. Their responsibilities range anywhere from religious leader- 
ship to teaching to industrial/vocational work. For details, contact the 
Department of Church Missions, Oakwood College. 

Following are the academic requirements for student missionaries: 

1 . The applicant must have attained at least sophomore standing (min- 
imal 36 quarter hours) with a cumulative grade point average of 
"C" (2.00) or above, and no grade below "C" in all EngUsh 
Composition and Grammar courses. 

2. The applicant must have a "B" (3.00) average or above in the 
subject area that he/she is expected to teach as a student missionary . 

3. Upon completion of a year of satisfactory service as a student 
missionary, the student shall receive four (4) hours of elective credit 
on a "pass/fail" basis in the area of "Student Foreign Service." 
Quality of service is determined by a written evaluation from im- 
mediate supervisor or appropriate official over the student mission- 
ary. The student may opt for an additional four (4) hours should 
he/she secure prior approval from an instructional department and 
the Academic Policies Committee establishing that more 



^ Oakwood College 

specialized mission services will be experienced such as, but not 
limited to, teaching certain academic disciplines. 

GRIEVANCE ON ACADEMIC MATTERS 

Any student who desires to express concern regarding instructional 
matters such as perceived unfairness or grading methodology or cheating or 
some misunderstanding within or without the classroom is encouraged to 
confer first with the teacher of the class and, if deemed necessary, with the 
teacher's department chairperson. The Academic Vice-President in such 
matters should be a last resort after the student and/or the teacher and/or the 
department head has gone over the particulars with the other two of these 
three levels of individuals.

2 Instead of a major and a minor, the student will pursue concentrations m at least 
' three disciplines of 36 hours each, with at least 16 upper division hours in each. A 

concentration in this context is defined as a unified, departmental area of study 
consisting of a minimum of 36 hours but without any specific course or cognate 
requirements. If one of the concentrations is Education, the transcnpt will specity 
"without Teacher Training." 

3 The satisfactory completion of at least 90 QUARTER HOURS at the junior and 
senior levels in any fields with no grade below a "C." Not more than 30 of the 90 
upper level hours or 60 of the 192 quarter hours would be accepted from any one 
department.

PRE-LAW 

Prof. Clarence Barnes, Advisor 

Students interested in pre-law should counsel with the Pre-law Advisor 
concerning the entrance requirements of law schools. 

Since a college degree is necessary for admission to most law schools , it 
is recommended that a student elect a major field of concentration not later 
than the beginning of the second year. Majors and minors in the fields of 
business administration, history, EngUsh, behavioral science and political 
science are generally preferred, although other majors may be acceptable. 
Electives in human physiology and anatomy and in mathematics are quite 
helpful. 

The booklet. Law Schools and Bar Admission Requirements, gives 
detailed information concerning a desirable academic background for the 
study of law. Interested students who desire a copy of this booklet should 
write to the following address:

PRE-MEDICAL AND PRE-DENTAL 

Chairperson Department of Biology 
Chairperson Department of Chemistry 

Students preparing for medicine should be conversant with the re- 
quirements of the medical college to which they plan to apply. They should 
be careful to include all required courses in their program of study. 

Since a college degree is necessary for admission to most medical 
schools, it is recommended that the student elect a major field of specializa- 
tion not later than the beginning of the second year. Inasmuch as training in 
scientific thinking is an invaluable asset to the study of medicine, it is 
recommended that the student major either in biology or chemistry; how- 
ever, the choice is left to the student. 

For recommendation to a medical school , a student should: 

a. Maintain a commendable record of conduct and character. 

b . Attain a grade-point average of at least 3 . in both science and 
non- science courses.

DESCRIPTION OF COURSES 

GR 380/HE 380. FAMILY AND KINSHIP RELATIONS OF THE AGED 4 

This course focuses in depth upon the family and kinship relations during old age. 
The topics of concern include the older couple, changes such as divorce and 
widowhood, sexuality, relations between adult children and aged parents, sibling 
relations during late life, great-grandparents, and other kinship relations of older 
people. 

GR 385/EN 385. THE LITERARY EXPRESSION OF AGING 4 

Traditional literary depiction of old age has tended to influence our emotional 
attitude toward this part of the human life cycle. Additionally, contemporary was 
media have customarily depicted the old as either pathetic victims or comic 
fumblers. Study of both traditional and contemporary portraits of the old may 
serve to counteract both stereotyped and sentimental responses. Studying Uterary 
works against the background of present-day gerontology insights will demon- 
strate the way humanities and social sciences can benefit each other. 

GR 390/BI 390. PHYSIOLOGY OF AGING 4 

The study of physiologic changes that occur during the human life span starting 
with fertilization through adulthood and from childhood to senescence. Emphasis 
will be placed on genetic, physiologic and environmental factors on the aging 
process. Aspects of aging as it relates to cell biology, nucleic acid, protein syn- 
thesis, hormones, the nervous system, the vascular system, internal organs, 
nutrition and drugs will also be emphasized. Prerequisite: BI 101. 

GR 480. PSYCHOLOGY OF AGING 4 

Successful aging may be viewed from a variety of perspectives, including a 
statistical— norm what most people do or an ideal that few reach. The focus of this 
course is upon the psychological dimensions involving many levels of analysis- 
intellectual functioning, psycho-motor abiUty , changes in self-esteem and person- 
ality, and psycho-pathology. Prerequisite: PY 101. 

GR 482. METHODS, COMMUNITY SERVICE AND FIELD EXPERIENCE 4 

This course focuses on (1) values, knowledge and principles involved in the field of 
gerontology; (2) implications of current knowledge about aging (theory, research, 
observations) for community services; (3) scope of services (information, counsel- 
ing, referral, visitation, home-housing, income maintenance, dietary care, trans- 
portation, legal aid, retirement preparation, recreation, education, etc.); (4) expo- 
sure of the students to senior centers, senior housing projects, social agencies, or 
research projects. Prerequisite: SW 210. 

GR 490. PROBLEM PERSPECTIVES OF AGING 4 

The primary purpose of this course is to familiarize students with some of the 
problems people experience in relation to or as a consequence of growing older. 
Material deals with the major unmet needs of older people. The approach focuses 
upon the current status of older people on the issues outlined below, identifies the 
deficiencies in these areas, and examines resources available to deal with the 
specific problems faced by older people and the broad implications and conse- 
quences of various problem solving methods. Prerequisite: SW 210.

BIOLOGY (Bl) 

The Department is interested with providing its students both the 
breadth of understanding and the opportunity to explore many areas in 
biology in greater depth. The required courses and cognates in the concentra- 
tion establish a core of fundamental knowledge in biological and related 
science. Students then build on this base from a variety of other courses 
(electives), laboratory, and discussions that explore areas within biology 
from the basic level to current research topics. The development of labora- 
tory and fieldwork skills is encouraged. The major in biology prepares 
students for inomediate employment as well as for professional training in 
medicine and biomedical research.

The Department of English seeks to develop effective programs for 
training all students to read with speed and comprehension, to speak and 
write clearly, and to listen and recall correctly. It also seeks to enable 
non-majors as well as majors to perceive the importance of literature as a 
source of vital insights into the problems and achievements of men — ancient 
or modern. A major program is offered for those intending to pursue 
graduate study in English, and for those preparing to teach on the elementary 
and secondary levels. 

All entering freshmen are required to take EN 101- 102- 103 in sequence 
unless their high school grades, ACT and/or other test scores show evidence 
of proficiency in these areas, in which event the students may be exempted 
from EN 101 and possibly EN 102. Students are expected to complete EN 
101-102-103 by the end of the freshman year. 

Any student who receives a grade below "C" in any composition 
course will be required to repeat the course. 

A grade below "C" in any English course may not apply on a major or 
minor.

MATHEMATICS (MA) AND PHYSICS (PH) 

The specific objectives of this department are in agreement with the 
general objectives of the college. 

Mathematics may be classifed according to two general categories, 
pure mathematics and applied mathematics. Pure mathematics is very 
abstract, and proof (in the sense of a deductive system) is its most important 
concern. On the other hand, applied mathematics has arisen out of attempts 
to solve problems in the natural sciences and, in particular, the physical 
sciences. This department proposes to present these two points of view as a 
combined and unified whole. 

The department further proposes to develop an appreciation by the 
student of the fact that the One who created and upholds the universe also 
made the integers and gave man the mental power and the will to develop the 
rest of what is called mathematics. 

Those who plan to teach in secondary schools must also minor in 
Education, and meet the requirements for teacher certification. 

Mathematics majors are encouraged to minor in at least one of the 
following subjects: chemistry, physics, or business administration. 

No grade below "C" may apply on a major or minor.

Department of 

RELIGION 

AND THEOLOGY 



Professors: Reaves (Head), Warren 

Associate Professor: Melancon 

Assistant Professors: Pitt, Fraser 



RELIGION (RE) AND BIBLICAL LANGUAGES (BL) 

The sub-areas of this division are three, namely: (1) RELIGION, (2) 
THEOLOGY, and (3) BIBLICAL LANGUAGES. 

The RELIGION major follows a tailored course of study to prepare for 
Bible Worker Instructorship, Classroom Teaching (Elementary, Secondary, 
and Higher Education levels), Literature Ministry, Medical Ministry, 
Foreign Missions, and Laymen Leadership. THEOLOGY is for the major 
who looks to the Pastoral Evangelist ministries (with further ministerial 
training at the SDA Theological Seminary of Andrews University) , and to 
the Military Chaplaincy. BIBLICAL LANGUAGES as an area offers a 
minor which includes Greek and Hebrew. 

A guide to the specialty areas of full-time teachers in the department is 
as follows: 

Fraser (Pastoral Administration) 

Melancon (New Testament Studies) 

Pitt (Systematic Theology) 

Reaves (Homiletics and Urban Ministry) 

Warren (Homiletics and Biblical Studies) 

Because of the large number of persons preparing for the pastoral/ 

evangelistic ministry and the variety of new areas within the church for 

religious services, IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT EVERY 

STUDENT IN THEOLOGY HAVE ALSO A DOUBLE (or SECOND) 



Religion and Theology 199 

MAJOR in which case no MINOR is required. Such a student also takes a 
shorter list of "COGNATE" classes. 

The Department recognizes the true concept of Ministry is not limited 
to pastoral or professional ministry but is broad enough to include service in 
a number of areas. Accordingly the Religion and Theology program is 
structured, to undergird a diversity of Career options, and to develop 
multi- skilled ministries. 

Departmental majors must follow one of several study programs pro- 
viding a double profile of competence in ministry and related study areas . * 
Programs are as follows: 

A. Ministry and Management (may take 5 years) 

B. Ministry and Human Services 

C. Ministry and Mass Communications 

D. Ministry and Religious Education 

E. Ministry and Health Science 

F. Ministry and Biblical Studies 

*3.0 GP A Requirement 

G. Ministry and Literature Evangelism 

H. Para-Professional Programs in Ministry 

Students must consult their Program Advisor or the Religion office for 
the checksheet listing the specific courses required within each of the study 
programs.

Theology (Ministerial Training) Program. EligibiUty for admission to the 
Theology Program is determined after completion of the sophomore year in 
college. The first two years of the college experience provide the student an 
opportunity to qualify for entrance into the Theology Program. Students

and weaknesses as they relate to the work of the ministry. 
5. Satisfactory completion of the course RE 100 (Introduction to

BIBLICAL LANGUAGES' 

DESCRIPTION OF COURSES 

BL 201-202-203. BEGINNING N.T. GREEK 4-4-4 

These courses are designed to familiarize the student with the fundamentals of 
Greek grammar and sentence structure as found in the Greek New Testament. 
Vocabulary drills, simple translation, and reading exercises are provided in each 
lesson. All quarters of Beginning New Testament Greek include a weekly, one 
hour lab requirement in addition to regular class attendance requirements. Lab 
assignments are made during the first week of classes after students have received 
job assignments.

grammar and syntax, translation of selected passages in the Greek New Testa- 



208 Oakwood College 

ment, Greek vocabulary building through word studies, and elementary Greek 
word classifications. The course will emphasize some advanced principles of 
exegesis. Primary emphasis in the course relates to the use of Greek as a research 
tool and as a tool for more effective preaching. Prerequisite: BL 201-202-203. 

BL 303. INTERMEDIATE NT. GREEK 2 

A more advanced coverage of Intermediate New Testament Greek, including an 
introduction to the Greek Septuagint and the Apocrypha in anticipation of studies 
in Biblical Hebrew. This course also introduces the student to the New Testament 
Apocrypha and selected Greek Patristic writings. Prerequisite: BL 301-302. 

BL 411-412. BEGINNING CLASSICAL HEBREW 4-4 

A survey of the most prevalent language found in the Old Testament with emphasis 
on syntax, sentence structure, vocabulary, reading and translation. The objective 
is not only to better equip the student for graduate work in Biblical study but also to 
provide him with a useful tool toward an accurate interpretation and understand- 
ing of the Bible during his college career and during his personal study. Because 
Hebrew is not required in the theological curriculum, it is offered only upon special 
request to the Religion Department. 

* (Language requirements for the Theology major must be taken in 
the following sequence: The Greek requirement is to be started in 
the fall quarter of the sophomore year and completed in the spring of 
the junior year. After Greek is completed the Hebrew requirement 
is to be taken in the senior year.)
